Nido Kids

there’s nothing cuter than a kiddo wearing a hand-knitted jersey, especially if it’s been made by someone special like mom or granny. if you don’t have any knitters in the family perhaps check out the new nido kids AW16 range. see my previous posts about nido here.

Yes, I could live in a Swedish Chapel

i’ve reached the stage now where i’m kind of hate-scrolling through these interior design websites that feature perfectly perfect all white Swedish apartments. you know the type? i used to love them. now i’m just like UGH get away from me! please can i see some more personality and colour! then…

Elizabeth Suzann FW15

Elizabeth Suzann FW15

so, Elizabeth Suzann has turned into a bit of a cult label since i first blogged about her way back in 2013. that’s because Elizabeth is a bit of a genius. her collections just get better and better – i think she might have reached peak awesomeness with FW15. i…


Ice Huts by Richard Johnson

i’ve never experienced the kind of bitter cold that Canada and other similarly wintery places have to deal with, but something tells me that sitting in an ice fishing hut doesn’t appeal to me much.  when i saw this series by photographer Richard Johnson however, i started imagining what my own ice hut would…


Tony Chestnut FW14

the rad thing about the blog is that often after i’ve discovered and posted about the work of talented people it allows us to connect and keep in touch – so i’m kept in the loop whenever something new is on the horizon (good for me, and good for you!)…

À Capucha!

À Capucha!

wow there seems to be some seriously cool stuff coming out of Portugal lately. i recently featured Portuguese brands SUL and Nomad, now À Capucha! is the latest to add to that list. i mean, something that has an exclamation mark in its actual name has to be good, right? right!

designers Inés and Iván of La Casita de Wendy have just launched their new collection Sisterhood at Paris Fashion Week. the entire collection has been produced by traditional artisans & craftsmen in their native Spain, using natural fabrics such as wool, silk and cotton. for this collection they also worked…


Take Care

Take Care is a Cape Town based label by designer Jessica Harwood. their winter collection suits my taste for beautiful pared down pieces. i went into their shop on Kloof Street recently, shared with menswear label Adriaan Kuiters, and man-handled (woman-handled?) some of the beautiful coats. i am particularly taken…



i know i complain about our endless summers a plenty – it’s not the sunshine that gets me, it’s just the heat guys! i revel in the short winter months where i get to wear stockings and scarves and coats and things made from wool. i must admit though, it…

Charlotte Linton A/W 2012

Charlotte Linton hits it straight out of the park again with her A/W 2012 collection The travel diaries of early 20th century artist Rockwell Kent provide a starting point for designer Charlotte Linton’s Greenland Collection. Taking inspiration from the paintings and drawings Kent created whilst living amongst Inuit communities, Charlotte…

Confezioni Crosby F/W 2012

easter is my favourite holiday. not because of the chocolate (who cares about the chocolate? we can buy that stuff all year round – who are we kidding.) no no, it’s because every easter weekend in my living memory has marked the turn of the seasons. it will always be…

Rhi Ellis

calm. down. that’s what i had to tell myself this morning. instead of closing my eyes & listening to chilled music, i had a look through the photography of Rhi Ellis, whose moody pictures of ice and water and cold and fog put me at ease. all photographs by Rhi Ellis


one of my new years resolutions should probably have been to stop complaining about the heat. i live in africa, i have done for 28 years, i need to get over it. WELL. that will never happen. i actually day dream about the cold. i look at pictures of girls…

i usually hate websites that play music automatically, but there’s something quite pleasant about looking through the new sessun a/w 2012 lookbook while listening to their playlist selection of holy shit & julie doiron – amongst others. seen via mallory
